Notes:  Stephen and Mary were married by P. Goodfellow, Minister of the Canadian Presbyterian Church of Bosanquet.

All of Stephen and Mary's 16 children (12 sons and four daughters) were born in the log house which stood north of the brick house on the property.
The log house had one large and one small room downstairs and they had to go up a ladder to bed.  Later the house was made into a shop.  It was lovely around the house with shrubs, maples, apple trees, and a winding lane.  (The farm was sold on 25 Sep 1970 to the Hodgson family after at least 75 years in the Catt family.)

Mary was still in bed with three-days-old Philip when 19-years-old Will was hit and killed by lightning in 1888.

Seven of Stephen and Mary's children (Alice, Albert, Harold, Norman, Newton, Walter, and Philip) eventually moved west and lived, died, and were buried in the Province of Manitoba, Canada.  The remaining nine children stayed and lived in the Province of Ontario — and were buried in Lambton County.

Twelve of Stephen and Mary's 16 children eventually married and produced 38 grandchildren.  The four children who did not marry (Will, Lillie, Charles, and Ernest) remained in or near Bosanquet and died and were buried in Lambton County.
